Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
Segura Viudas Brut Reserva Cava, created from a blend of reserve and non-vintage wines, is clean
and delicate, yet rich in flavor.
Brut is a cuvée of Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel-lo grapes grown in the renowned
Penedès region of Spain. The wine is vinified according to méthode champenoise technique
and is aged in the bottle for up to 2 years.
This fine cuvée is fairly crisp with an interesting floral note and mouth-pleasing sensation of creaminess.
"One of the most reliable Cavas at the price, this offers cool, crisp cider apple flavors along with leesy notes of toast, nuts and flowers. It's gentle and clean, fuel for a dance party. Best Buy."
Wine & Spirits
Lovely and what a wonderful wine for the money. Buy cases and serve it fearlessly over the holidays. I will.
Tried this one because of the price and rating, but it isn't as smooth as some others in same price range.
I enjoyed aliment as much as Wolf Blass Yellow Label Brut
We've taken this to get-togethers in the past and we're taking it to a ThanksGiving potluck with extended family. Sparkling Spanish whites were greeted with a very positive response.
Restaurant wine is $9 a glass. This is great with food. Highly recommend.
Loved this cava, light, dry with delicate bubbles. I will definitely buy this one again.
This is a very good sparkling wine for the money. If you are looking for a sparkling wine that is priced for everyday drinking, this tastes as good as those that are twice the price.
I bought 6 cases of this for my wedding. It's incredibly easy to drink for all fans of the bubbly, tastes great, and you absolutely can't beat the price.
This inexpensive dry, fresh champagne has nice accents of apple and citrus
It's important to remember when tasting wine that a Cava; 6 bucks at my local wine shop; can't be compared to, say, 1996 Bollinger R.D. Yes, they both have bubbles and are made in similar manners, but two cases of this and a bottle of the '96 Bolly will set you back around the same amount. And, if you go through bubbles like I do, the top flight stuff can't come out that often. So, what is the Segura Viudas? Solid. Very tight on the nose, though it opens up as it warms, the nose is never really gets there for me. Which is disappointing, because a sparkler should have a great nose. I find the palate one-dimensional, and a little sweet for a Brut. Tastes of lemons, fading to apples. More apples on the finish, though it fades quickly. Good price point for everyday bubbles you don't have to age, worlds better than the Andre crud that inhabit the same price point, and compares favourably to the California "champagne" that starts with K. Wine and Spirits got little carried away, but 87 would be a fair score. (Not a 90 point wine at all) Good value and consistent from bottle to bottle.
I try always to keep a bottle chilled in the fridge. This is a great value. Crisp and light it pairs amazingly with carry-out Chinese, esp. grilled or fried shrimp. Consistently very good.
This is a traditional dry cava that works quite well for its price. Granted it does not have the absolute best in terms of taste it is pleasant and very affordable. Taste wise it tends to the dryer side but still retains a certain sweetness.
I liked the cava overall - it had a nice light taste and good bubbles. But I found it lacking in depth and deep flavors. So, I probably wouldn't order it again when looking for a cava.
Very good entry level champaigne - super value - this and Cristalino are wonderful to toast with at a very reasonable price
This is one of my two go-to summer bubblies for the several pot-lucks, picnics, receptions, etc. that I go to/host each year. Folks love it when you show up with something a little different than the usual "critter" wines and I think it's a good cava for the money.
Very good for the price. However, I think Cristalino Brut Cava is much better and in the same price range. I found it a little too bland. It was nice and bubbly, but it seemed to require a colder than optimal temperature.
Wine had a good start with a hint of pepper. No legs -- finished weak
